March 25, 2013 — I'm not a concert goer. And few musicians buffet me the way I need it. But Nick Cave does. Enough that I kind of hate talking about it. But I wanted to at least mark that I got to see him and the Bad Seeds at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston last night. It was the first time I've ever seen him live. That's about 17 years from the first time I heard one of his songs. It was Red Right Hand. It was on the Songs in the Key of X: Music From and Inspired by the X-Files. That's an embarrassing origin story, but you should hear how I met my wife.
We were three rows from the stage. It was an amazing night.
